Hi ashish,
Please click on this link for the last updated drivers posted by Asus for the K8V-MX motherboard.
After reading the trouble you seem to have this might not be windows hanging on installing a simple driver. You're trouble may be caused by the primary hard drive not allowing windows to write to the drive. There is no other reason why windows would hang. Window should load completely with out you having to install any specific driver from the Asus CD. Motherboard drivers like the LAN driver can wait until windows has finished installing its self.
(This is normal for a windows install).
Suggest you go to the hard disk drive, manufacture's web site & download their tool /utilities, setup software. (This software works out side of windows in a dos like mode). You can create either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk which will allow you to check the drive for internal errors. The software will clear the sectors & repair the hard disk drive if needed allowing window to install. You can also use the software utilities to format the drive rather than using windows. This will ensure there is nothing wrong with the drive. Than load you're window CD into the CD-ROM & install windows. When windows has finished installing you can than install the driver's from the Asus CD. Than go to the above Asus web side & download & install any driver's that are newer than on the CD. Lastly update windows to SP2. Do not install SP3 until you are 100% sure windows & the motherboard are running perfect.

Good Luck! Take you're time.

Laptop powers on, but windows doesnt load

Boot PC from Windows XP installation CD you will be ask to instal fresh copy or repair existing installation - go for "fresh copy" software will analyze you PC and try to find your previous copy of Win XP you will be ask again to repair copy of your existing Windows Xp now go for "Repair" option so installation software restore all Windows files and will keep all your settings*.
This solution is only temporary because IE 7 and 8 will no longer work after restoring - backup all your data and instal fresh copy of Win XP after all and always keep Your Backup up to date!!

Windows xp installing failed

I assume you are trying to install XP from a self-burned CD.
Did you slipstream SP2 or SP3 in it?

If so, try to burn a DVD instead of a CD. I had that problem once too and followed some advice I found here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I get the Blus screen when trying to install a fresh copy of XP on my nx8220

If you are installing a fresh copy, you should boot from cd, and not start it from windows. It is less error prone.
